88 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Moon (Al-Qamar) before A 'araaf (Al-A 'araaf)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
SAD. I CALL to witness the admonishing Qur'an. (1) In fact, the unbelievers are the ones who are boastful and quarrelsome. (2) How many generations have We destroyed before them. They called: 'The time is neither of escape, nor safety' (3) And they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves. And the disbelievers say, "This is a magician and a liar. (4) Does he make all the deities out to be one God? This is indeed a strange thing." (5) The chiefs among them departed saying: go, and persevere in your gods; verily this is a thing designed. (6) We have not heard this in the religious community close to our time. This is nothing but a fabrication. (7) Hath the reminder been unto him (alone) among us? Nay, but they are in doubt concerning My reminder; nay but they have not yet tasted My doom. (8) Do they have the stores of the mercy of your Lord, the mighty and munificent? (9) Or is it that the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them is theirs? If so, let them ascend up with means (to the heavens)! (10) But there - will be put to flight even a host of confederates. (11) To the truth gave the lie aforetime Noah's people, and [the tribe of] Ad, and Pharaoh of the [many] tent-poles, (12) Thamood, the nation of Lot and the dwellers of the Thicket such were the confederates. (13) Each of them gave the lie to Messengers and My decree of chastisement came upon them. (14)
